xmas tradition


imageholidays on ice (1997) by humorist david sedaris contains “santaLand diaries” \ aired on public radio every year around christmastime, the reading of “santaLand diaries” is like the “twas the night before christmas” tradition of the npr crowd

“santaLand diaries” fictionalizes sedaris’s time working as an elf at macys \ my favorite part is when santa santa asks him to sing “away in a manger” for a little girl / like any helpful elf, he does – unlike other elves, he sings it a la billie holiday 🙂 \ always makes me laugh – just heard it on morning edition
